A good way to start is by getting a webpage address, most people use free web spaces, some free ones include geocities www.geocities.com (http://www.geocities.com) and angelfire www.angelfire.com (http://www.angelfire.com) and are the 2 most popular free webpage hostings, as far as I can tell, however you do some searching you can find free webspaces that give you pages like www.d***led.com/your (http://www.d***led.com/your) name which I had for awhile but didn't like the layout of it

Once you've got your URL, you can begin making up your webpage, it's good to use something like Netscape Composer or Microsoft Frontpage express, yet it also depends on what kinda webpage browser you have, though most should come with their own webpage editing tools

You can also download free webpage editing tools, if you're not happy with what you have already (if you actually do have any webpage editing tools on your computer)

Then just find any pictures or backgrounds or whatever you wanna use on your webpage and once it's finished and on your computer then you can upload it to your homepage site

Hope this helps and isn't too confusing for you http://www.escapemi.com/forums/smile.gif

if ur really into webpages too u might wanna look into a free cgi-bin server where all u have to do is upload your html files and stuff, but thats for advanced level users,

if i were u i would use www.address.com (http://www.address.com) or www.xoom.com, (http://www.xoom.com,) because i hate my geocities page!! it never lets me log in if someone is viewing a file from the server!
